Temporarily, another stage

I'm afraid to announce that I may not do much blogging at The Middle Stage for the next few days. I'm going to Chennai in a few hours, and from there will visit some of the areas affected by the tsunami. I shall be blogging on my experiences, if I get internet connectivity, on my other blog, India Uncut. Do check that out, and rest assured, I'll be back at The Middle Stage soon. Thank you for your (hopefully continued) patronage.

The Middle Stage was run by Amit Verma in its inception. I have always been a great fan of Amit Verma ever since he shifted to his own domain...And the "thinking it through" column was a prime reason for me reading mint..

Anyways, Chandrahas "you look like Matt Damon" Chaudhry...I saw you at Manipal...I was one of the outstation delegates there.

You had a few good things to say i guess...and the fact that you didn't read out from a laptop was really nice.

Anyways, I wanted to ask you something there but didn't coz you were really running short of time.

So i am askin ya now...

As a literature blogger I would like to know if writing for paper and writing for blogs is different...I have an opinion but I want to have a critics point of view...As in, if I review a story that I've read on paper I may like it...but if I read the same thing online I may find it a bit bulky...

So according to you where does the difference lie...I write stories for my blog and therefore, it's very important for me to get to know a critic's point of view...
